"He's a person on an individual basis that puts faith and family first. From a governing stand point he's going to put America first," Senator Ron Johnson said of Ryan on Wednesday.

Johnson, who is also from Wisconsin, calls Ryan a man of principal and a policy guy who is pro-growth.  Tonight, Johnson says he does not expect Ryan to go on the attack but rather explain his reasons for a change in the Oval Office.

 "I don't think there's any reason to attack. All we have to do is lay out the facts and figures, tell the American people the truth. I mean this is President Obama's record, that's not attacking, that is simply telling people the truth."

Other speakers scheduled for Wednesday night include New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, Florida Attorney General and Tampa native Pam Bondi, Ron Paul's son Senator Rand Paul who will speak after a short video about his father, 2008 Republican Presidential nominee John McCain, Former presidential  Governor Tim Pawlenty, Mike Huckabee Senator Rob Portman and Condoleezza Rice.
